We went to a performance last night and really enjoyed it, Rita Rudner at Cerritos Center. The second act, which we skipped was Louie Anderson. Not a favorite. We went for a late dinner at a restaurant called Wood Ranch. It was really good. Tonight we will go to a concert for the RBCCA featuring a troupe called Cafe Musique. 2 nights out and then the rest of November will be quiet. Turn the clocks back tonight. I think I will attempt church tomorrow. Been a while. Sometimes I don't know what I believe or don't believe. 66 years and now I look at things differently. Whether it's right or wrong I don't know. More confused than ever.
The air is filled with the smell of fire. The Getty Fire is about 15 miles north of us. This is closer than any of the fires last week, so it stands that the smoke will be heavier. I shut the doors and don't go outside unless I have to.
Surgery awaits in January. Got an approval from the insurance but it expires Christmas Eve. So the referral people at the medical group will need to work their magic. Won't be anything big or exciting, but it's necessary.
I'm going to try out my Instant Pot tomorrow. That's scary for me. But if it goes well, it will be a great dinner.
Time change this weekend. Need it. Pounding my head on a wall again.
This morning I watched an episode of the Twilight Zone, starring Dennis Hopper. It was called " He's Alive". It was scarily relevant to what happened this weekend. Watch it if you want. I thought it was interesting that it was screened today. This is the closing narration from Rod Serling and it does ring true: Where will he go next, this phantom from another time, this resurrected ghost of a previous nightmare – Chicago? Los Angeles? Miami, Florida? Vincennes, Indiana? Syracuse, New York? Anyplace, everyplace, where there's hate, where there's prejudice, where there's bigotry. He's alive. He's alive so long as these evils exist. Remember that when he comes to your town. Remember it when you hear his voice speaking out through others. Remember it when you hear a name called, a minority attacked, any blind, unreasoning assault on a people or any human being. He's alive because through these things we keep him alive. https://youtu.be/B3ID7k0_xn4
